This morning was my first ever attempt at using the AF tracking mode on my Sony. A bit of a learning curve and a ways to go yet. I think it's a Great Cormorant - I'm in Dubai at the mo and am happy to be corrected.
An image from yesterday.
It's just a grab shot of a thrush sat in a tree. It was taken with an Olympus EM1 ii with the Olympus 300mm f4 Pro lens and 1.4 t/c.
I was so close I couldn't get the whole bird in the frame.
Unfortunately no camera with me, but a Dipper (my first ever) on the River Allen at Wimborne in Dorset, right next to all the shops too. Jumped up onto a rock for about 15 secs then took off up river. We were astonished.....
We've been going to go to Old Moor for quite sometime, it was your Bearded tit shots that made me have a drive over today. Did manage to get a few later in the afternoon, hazy sun light but heavy'ish crops and high ISO
It was an after thought when you'd said you'd been there everyday for the last 5 days, I'd noticed you had a 200-500 but didn't clock the body, thought it had to be worth asking.
